How to Wear Them

Men’s boots have hit a new high when it comes to popularity, and cowboy boots definitely fit into the mix. Men and cowboy boots have been a fabric of our society for well over one hundred years and they continue to have a place in our style as the boots continue to evolve.

The question is: how does a man wear cowboy boots? You see a lot of celebrities wearing cowboy boots while sporting a casual look these days. Basic cowboy boots are very versatile, look cool, are comfortable and can be very unique. 

Men's Cowboy Boots and Jeans

I'm more of a purist when it comes to wearing cowboy boots and think that they look best with jeans. There is no more classic American look for men than a white t-shirt, jeans and a great pair of cowboy boots. Now, I'm not saying that's the only way to wear them, but it's a really great look. 

Wearing Men's Cowboy Boots with Suits or Khakis

Now there are parts of the country where cowboys boots are less about style and more about lifestyle. You'll see guys wearing them with suits. I would personally never do that, but if boots are part of your lifestyle, then it's your call. 

While nothing goes better with men's cowboy boots than jeans, I have seen a more basic and clean looking boots go well with a pair of very casual, dark khakis. A pair of snake skin cowboy boots or something similarly extravagant wouldn't work, but a nice basic boot would look good -- and add a little different look to your ever evolving style.
